    Default Archon's Way of Wicked Campaign

    I realized that we could use an OOC thread. Mainly cause I want to let you all know my schedule.

    My RL job is a manager at a McDonald's. We are currently short on crew members so it is not unheard of for me to work 6 days in a week.

    I live near Chicago (GMT-6) if you want to calculate times based on where you live.

    Monday-Wednesday I work the overnight shift starting @ 10PM and going until 7AM the following morning.
    Thursdays and Fridays I have off.
    Sundays and Saturdays I am supposed to be working the Closing shift of 3PM to 11PM. But I usually end up working the 8AM to 4PM shift instead and staying a few extra hours on account of the short handedness.

    My brother's wedding is coming up at the end of the month.

    And I participate in a Mage LARP 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month.

    An obnoxious thing about the books is that they scaled their maps where each square is 10ft x 10ft. While game mechanics assume a grid of 5ft x 5ft. So my options are either redraw ALL the maps in the books. Or blow up the maps I have and make do. I picked the faster option.

    I was not planning on using fumbles in this game. But with the guard rolling a one, him being taunted into fighting without vital equipment, him being demoralized, plus some background info from the book. I felt a fumble is perfect for this situation. So I rolled on chart I found online. And the result more or less mirrors what Nigel Powers did in that movie. And I can only think. “This was meant to be.”

    Hey Ion,

    I think Mira would get her full strength bonus on the attack roll, with a final roll of 17, unless you are fighting defensively or the like. In that case, then please ignore my comment.

    She should take a -4 penalty to her attack roll due to fighting unarmed.

    No, unarmed strikes don't take a -4 non-proficiency penalty, they just provoko AoOs.

    I assumed that guard #2 was already done for, but just in case he wasn't, (1d20+10)[20] vs CMD, damage (1d3+5)[7]

    I made a list of the loot gathered so far and who has claimed what. Some of you just said you got dressed, before I got specific on what clothing is available. It is more flavor text than anything, but I am obsessive enough to note it anyways.

    Loot claimed so far
    Inigo – Dagger, Masterwork lock picks, padlock keys 5 & 11, undeclared tunic, Undeclared bottoms
    Mira – Guard uniform, Shield, Longsword, undeclared tunic, Undeclared bottoms, Chain shirt
    Gail – Cell and Manacle Keys, Maroon tunic, undeclared bottoms
    X – Club, Dark green tunic, Grey slacks
    Caleb – Lantern, Rope, Holy Symbol, Chain Shirt, Undeclared tunic, Undeclared bottoms
    Amber – Maroon Tunic, Brown skirt

    Unclaimed Loot
    Longsword
    Heavy Shield
    Longbow
    Longbow
    deck of cards
    Signal Horn
    club
    Guard Uniform
    dagger
    2 Maroon Tunics
    5 Dark Green Tunics
    4 Brown Skirts
    4 Grey Pants

    And the table, stools and torches in the guardroom and interrogation room are fair game too.

    Caleb grabbed the second club in #94, and will be picking up a uniform and a longbow.

    I would love to take the deck of cards, but do the tunics have pockets to store it in?

    Waiting to see if Gail claims the dagger then, otherwise Amber will take that, as stated in my last IC post.

    Noted. X will either destroy the signal horn or take it, but otherwise is uninterested in the mundane fighting equipment.

    Gail grabs a longsword and heavy shield, unless Caleb wants the shield. Time to release Grumblejack.

    I would *highly* recommend you reconsider your approach, Ionbound. Any sensible person would view your action with a sword as an attack, and X is far from a sensible person.

    I don't want to participate in infighting, but I don't see any other remotely reasonable way to respond to that last post.

    That's fair. The issue is that Mira views releasing Grumblejack as a personal threat to her safety. I'm not sure how to rectify this.

    That's a fair point. We've kind of worked our way into a complicated situation, I suppose.

    X feels obligated to free Grumblejack. Call it some twisted sense of honor. The Ogre promised to fight the guards, and X said he'd try to see him free. That said, X is not above doing it in secret (or waiting until the rest of the party is distracted, if it comes to it).

    Is there something he could do to allay Mira's concerns? I'm not sure he would care enough to look for the opportunity, but I could have him behave that way "on accident," and not feel bad about it.

    Perhaps I could detract some of his "in your face"-esque commentary, and say he did it when Mira was divying loot or donning the chain shirt?

    We were not in combat rounds so we can play with the passage of time. Gail and X started to unlock GrumbleJack while Mira was dressing. It dies take a few rounds to don armor. Mira can make her repeated objections known, but her sword strike will be too late.

    (y) thanks Archon. That will do. I'll try to be more deliberate to avoid opportunities for these sorts of run-ins in the future.

    Wow . . .

    So everyone Shhhh.

    It has hit the fan at work.

    The good news is that our most incompetent and drama seeking manager has quit. Fittingly, she quit in an incompetent act of drama seeking. I will be taking her position and getting a sweet raise too.

    My hours will be shifting to 5 overnight shifts, Sunday through Thursday starting the 18th. Until then we have had to scramble to cover her shifts. Chaotic really. But this is the cause of my struggle the last few days.

    So I should be finished with the next game post in about 10 minutes ish.

    You know, I told myself that Caleb was going to wait for Inigo's report. I guess I just really wanted to roast somebody. Let's call it Caleb's powermongering instincts telling him that he needed to show decisive and effective action!.

    Seeing Amber at the top of the initiative round, I could just not let the opportunity slide to tie into Caleb's intro like this.

    Congratulations with the raise, archon_huskie!

    It seems suitable for all of us to post actions, as the guards' first rounds will be somewhat accounted for. Amber might need to give two rounds worth of actions to get us back to where the guards are likely to act in a combative manner.

    We should really not have much difficulty ending the fight before it becomes a problem.

    Second round's action was given! Though I hope the guards are at this point well beaten.
